Booking Now for Brecks Building Skills Workshops

Booking has now opened for the next series of Brecks Building Skills Workshops, to be held at West Stow Anglo Saxon Village and delivered by Orchard Barn Environmental Education Centre CIC.

One of the first of Breaking New Ground's projects, Brecks Building Skills was a great success, with all workshops fully booked and attended by a wide range of people from builders to owners of older properties. Many participants came to more than one workshop for hands-on training in traditional skills including flint knapping and timber framing. 

Each workshop costs £5 and places are limited.
